Did you read those verses??? Really read them??
This is a treasure.
These are the Westbrook babes.
I begged several times for them as they struggled to raise the money they needed to bring home these treasures.
Well they have them... And they are precious treasures indeed.
The Westbrooks know all about storing up treasures... and not storing up treasures...
You see right before they left to get the girls they did a Giveaway.
Right in the middle of their Giveaway - they realized they were FULLY FUNDED. But the Giveaway was NOT OVER.
Now many people would have quietly finished out the Giveaway in order to give themselves a buffer against unforeseeable problems.
They would have stored up treasures....
Not the Westbrooks.
They instead offered all the extra proceeds from their Giveaway to other families who were in process. They gave away their earthly treasure!
Then Kirsten (mom) and Daniel (son) crossed the ocean to gather their true treasures to their side.
On Saturday they were supposed to fly home with the babes and celebrate a happy ending to an amazing story.
But our US government messed up and the visas that the girls needed to leave the country were NOT READY. And so the Westbrooks (Mom, Daniel and the 2 girls) are stuck in country until they can get the visas. More than that.. changing the tickets cost them thousands of dollars.
I will say no more.
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven,where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
